The Dark Web has whatever you want, even assassination services apparently. Sites like Silk Road that sell drugs, sex, fake ID, and dirty deeds done dirt cheap are only accessible by using the Tor browser. And then you need to know the semi-secret URLs.
Tor is free software from the Electronic Frontier Foundation, who are certified good guys in the battle against government snooping and tyranny. It allows you to surf the web completely anonymously by hopping from relay to relay and using encryption.
Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features. Tor provides the foundation for a range of applications that allow organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy.
Journalists, whistleblowers, freedom fighters, and more use Tor to obscure their tracks on the net. So do people who want to buy and sell things they’d rather keep private. Bitcoin is the currency, and it is anonymous too, and currently at about $45.
Silk Road is the biggest marketplace. As you can see from the ads, they offer quite a range of merch and services. Is it all legit? Do you have recourse if cheated? Could the vendors be government honeypots? Dunno. Caveat emptor would seem to be the best approach.
Silk Road is just the surface. There are hundreds of other Dark Web sites, some much better hidden, where you can get other things; child porn, guns, order a hit, swap cracking software and warez, etc.
You’ll have to hunt for the Silk Road url. I won’t post it here. It only works in Tor. Accessing it in a regular browser returns Site Not Found.
Welcome to the Dark Web.
